Laser Hair Removal
What is Laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is used to remove unwanted hair. The light emitted from the laser is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The energy from the light is converted to heat, which damages hair follicles that produce hairs. This inhibits and/or delays future hair growth, get a free consultation by filling the form!
Before the operation, a protective eye shield will be placed over your eyes to prevent injury to your corneas or retinas. The hair in the wanted area that will be undergoing treatment will be trimmed to a few millimeters above the skin surface. A gel or a special cooling device will be used to protect the outer layers of your skin. This will also make the treatment more effective by facilitating laser light penetration through the skin.
A low-energy laser beam is generally used and adjusted to your skin color, thickness, and location of the hair that is to be removed. A test treatment will first be done by directing a test pulse light to the treatment area. A low-energy laser beam will go through your skin and be absorbed by the pigment of a percentage of the active-growth hair follicles.
If the test proves successful, the low-energy laser beam is then systematically directed spot-by-spot to the areas to be treated, instantly, and permanently disabling the active-growth hair follicles with each treatment. Follicles in the dormant phase are not affected by the treatment.
Once the procedure is over, you are given ice packs, cold water, or anti-inflammatory creams or lotions to soothe the treated areas and diminish any discomfort.
